Product Information

Aristeus antennatus, commonly known as 'Purple shrimp', is a decapod crustacean belonging to the Aristeidae family, hailing from the Mediterranean Sea and fished with trawls mainly by the sailors of Mazara del Vallo. It lives in areas with soft bottoms, usually muddy, up to 1440m deep, although during the night it moves towards the surface.

  • The colour of the XL-sized shrimp is pale red, often with purplish shades; together with the three teeth on the upper part of the rostrum, it allows the distinction with Aristaeomorpha foliacea (Red Shrimp), with a more intense colour.
  • Hailing from the Mediterranean Sea, they are ideal to star in your favourite seafood recipes.
  • While it can be cooked in various ways (boiled, grilled) it is appreciated especially raw or marinated.
